International Journal of Science and Research (IJSR)
Ovary is the commonest site of neoplastic and non-neoplastic lesions, can present in childhood to post menopausal age group. Materials and Methods: This is a retrospective study of 78 cases over a period of two years. Results: The total number of ovarian lesions studied during the study period were 78 cases, among them 74 cases (94.87%) were neoplastic and 4 cases (5.12%) were non-neoplastic. The non-neoplastic cases seen were endometriosis cysts and salpingo-oophoritis. Among the 74 neoplastic
... lesions 65 cases (87.83%) were benign and 9 cases were (12.15%) were malignant. In benign lesion most commonly seen are mucinous cystadenomas accounting for 32 cases (43.24%) followed by serous cystadenomas accounting for 15 cases (20.27%). In malignant cases mucinous cystadenocarcinomas are the most common followed by serous cystadenocarcinomas and metastasis. Conclusion: The majority of ovarian lesions received for evaluation were benign and unilateral and suggests need for further effort to early diagnosis and management.
